Intro

A classic Brazilian cake that our co-founder Ana Banana grew up with and regularly makes at home, simply because it's so easy and a joy to eat alongside a good cup of coffee in the afternoon! The kids love it too (minus the coffee).

Ingredients

  • - 3 medium carrots, grated (c. 250g)
  • - 3 medium eggs
